Battle Order is a YouTube channel that covers topics relating to military organization and unit purpose, and to a lesser degree tactics. It accomplishes this via well-produced graphics, videos, and animations. We have a truly global audience, and I frequently have conversations with servicemembers from the US, UK and Canada to Vietnam, South Korea, and Israel.
The whole project is really guided by whatever piques my curiosity that given week. It started when I became interested in squad- and platoon-level organization, and making a graphic helped me learn more (plus I found having a collection of graphics satisfying). It has since covered the whole breadth of military organization. Because it is mainly curiosity-driven, this leads me to cover topics and countries where info is hard to find.
I consider myself more of a designer who is able to make a topic as complex as military organization a little more digestible, rather than a military "expert" or academic. Often the experts have forgotten what it's like not to know things (no danger of knowing too much here). And I think my approach to Battle Order is helpful for people who find absorbing through text alone hard. I've received testimonials of Battle Order graphics and videos being used to train or brief anyone from junior enlisted to student officers at their BOLC and general officers.
